Photographic Prints

Captured in the vegetable section of the volunteer garden at my local botanical garden. I enjoy photographing bees, even though they are difficult subjects. :) If you have a minute, the larger version of this is worth a look for the increased detail. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 35mm macro, f/7.1, 1/160 sec., ISO 100, partly cloudy)

Featured in RedBubble Explore, 7 Day Popular Art, Design & Photography (June 2012)

    Love the way one can see through the gossamer of the bee’s wings.

  • Thank you, Bette! It was a good bit of luck that the bee stopped moving in a position that showed off the translucency of its wing.

    Wonderful lighting and detail on both bee and flower, Celeste! You’ve captured a difficult subject so very well!

  • Thank you, Anita! Bees are indeed difficult, and I’ve been known to throw away 20 or so files and not keep a one. :)

    Wow! What a wonderful closeup! The larger version is a treat!!

  • Thanks very much, Kristi! The larger version shows all the little hairs so much better. :) I’ve noticed in general that RB renders fine detail best in the larger size.

    Amazing details, Celeste. How beautiful can be an onion flower!!!!

  • Thank you, Eby! Onion flowers are very fine and delicate – and they smell mildly of onion.
